Abstract : It was shown in experiments using a canine model that intramuscular administration of unithiol (monohydrate sodium salt of 2,3-dimercapto-1-propansulfonic acid, 50 mg/kg) before cystamine (cystamine dihydrochloride, 100 mg/kg, calculation on the salt, intragastric administration) decreases the toxic effect of this radioprotector. The frequency of manifestations of the toxic effects of cystamine (change of behavior, vomiting reaction, decrease of body temperature and so on) is not decreased, but the severity of expression and duration are decreased. The period of agitation induced by cystamine is shortened, and the period and expression of vomiting induced by this preparation are decreased. Respiratory frequency and condition of the heart are less changed (according to EKG data).
